Our flight left Hawaii on Feb. 13th, just hours before Valentine's Day. I had fallen asleep with on the plane with my head on Bill's shoulder when he woke me up at midnight to tell me “Happy Valentine's Day”.
He then reached into his pocket and pulled out a box with a turtle bracelet which matched the large turtle necklace pendant and earrings he bought me earlier in the week.
I was amazed to hear of the story of getting it through security. He set off the alarms and when security wanted to know what was in his pocket he whispered, “I can't show you here – my wife will see it.” Then they stepped aside with him so he could show them the box with my bracelet in it so the surprise wouldn't be ruined.
